Making a Halloween Card for Cousin Monty

Elise has one cousin - he's called Monty and he's the son of my brother Ben and his wife Kelly. He is without a doubt the most smiley baby on the planet. He's currently 7 months old and Elise felt it necessary to make him a Halloween card to send with a toy spider she bought him. Well, why not?

Here's a really simple design that you could adapt for any occasion and it's easy as pie to make with a toddler.

What you'll need:

  • Some thick card (we used black as it's Halloween)
  • A piece of paper, slightly smaller that your card
  • A craft kinfe
  • Some glue
  • Some colours
  • A tiny bit of creative flair...

1. Use your creative flair to draw your picture on your card! We are doing a pumpkin as it's Halloween. Cut the various shapes out, including the main pumpkin:

2. Add some text:

3. Use the hole that's left to trace the same shape onto your white paper:

4. Elise then added plenty of colour to this line drawing... lots of reds, oranges and yellows!

5. Stick the white paper to the back of your card:


6. Glue your eyes, nose and mouth on top and... voila! A quick, fun Halloween greeting card for Monty! Scaaaaary!

Love and hugs,
Rebecca and Elise x
